"In Silence there is eloquence. Stop weaving and see how the pattern improves."
~Rumi

Silence

Silence
You are the space
Space between the particles

Where knowing exists
Where the answer is found
Where souls are uncovered
Where dreams lie awake at night

Silence

You speak
Deafening in your tremble

With conviction about the truth
With a love that holds on
With a peace...
A peace that can no longer be denied

Silence

You are a friend
A companion for life

For days of joy
For days of heartbreak
For every moment

Poet's Way One-Day Retreats

March 31 and April 1

Wanting to Explore Your Inner Artist?
Looking to dip your toe into the possibilities of your creativity?
Do you wish for a day of being immersed in focused play?

The Poet's Way is launching retreats and we're starting by doing one-day intensive feedback sessions with worthy individuals for just the cost of the food.

The Poet’s Way offers opportunities to listen, learn and live in concert with your authentic, creative, expressive self. Join us to experience poetry readings and writing, music, movement, journaling, conversations, interactions, and more.

The Poet's Way is life changing. When we all actually live from our hearts and poetry is just one way that we can help people connect with their own deeper meanings. We want to bring this way of being to a world full of people that live lives of quiet desperation—whether that is individuals or organizations.

From the Blog: How People ACTUALLY Change


If you have a teenager, you know. If you have a sibling or a spouse that you desperately want to see live differently, you know. If you—looking at your own life—ever had a way of living that you couldn't bring yourself to change, you know.


Information does not change us. Logic has little to no effect on us in terms of moving us in a specific direction. If we implemented 10% of the information in the books we've read—we would be exponentially richer, thinner, smarter, and happier.

What is it that your really want for your own life?

You're ambitious.
You're successful.
It seems you have a pretty good life.
You know though--that everything isn't what it seems.

We tend to do the same things over and over again in our lives expecting different results. We chase the dreams of our 20s only to find in our 40s that none of those things really mattered. What we really wanted was a life of joy. A life of friendship. A life of adventure. 

Instead, we find ourselves living for someone else's idea of a perfect life.

Authentic Development coaching is all about living a life of meaning--no matter what stage of life we are in.

Coaching changes lives. Coaching will bring you new discoveries. Give us a call or drop us a line. We'd like to provide a kick-ass, fighting for your heart, no holds barred coaching session. We guarantee that you will be called to action on something critical in your life and that call will come directly from inside you.  Learn more...
